I am really pleased to announce that I am now looking for my next apprentice to join my busy constituency team for 2019/2020.
This is a one year apprenticeship scheme for a local school leaver to gain experience in a busy MP’s constituency office whilst also studying for an NVQ Level 3 in Business Administration. As an integral part of Team Leadsom, my Apprentice Caseworker is responsible for engaging with constituents and dealing with some of the correspondence I receive each day, as well as supporting the wider team in ad hoc projects.
The role is full time, paid above the national apprenticeship wage, and lasts for twelve months. Although based in Towcester, there are regular opportunities to work in Westminster and to get fully involved in all aspects of parliamentary life.
Jake, my current apprentice, has recorded a video of his experience so far with my last apprentice Emily who joined me during her gap year before starting university.
To apply to be my 2019/20 Apprentice Caseworker please send me your CV, a cover letter and a 1-page researched essay on what you think are the three key challenges for South Northamptonshire and how you might tackle them. The deadline for applications is the 15th March 2019. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to me at my constituency office address.
My previous Apprentice Caseworkers thoroughly enjoyed their time in my office, and all have gone on to either study at university or into full time employment.
I look forward to hearing from you!
